Allowing Registered Users to post anonymously

In the past (eg 2008.5) it was possible to allow Registered Users to electively post as Anonymous:

This was replaced (now on 7.6) with an allegedly more flexible permissions-based scheme. But the basic function appears to be lost -- allowing authenticated users to elect to make a particular post as Anonymous. Our site relied on this function and we seem to have lost it in the upgrade. How can we reestablish it?

  • In reply to Luke D:

    The ability for authenticated users to post anonymously was removed.  Instead, permissions can be modified to allow non-logged-in users (anonymous users) to post to forums.  An authenticated user wishing to post anonymously, then, would need to log out, post anonymously, and log back in (similar to posting as another user via impersonation).
